CULINARY ADVENTURE

Makalali’s range of dishes features a combination of regional African cuisine to represent the ‘melting pot’ of cooking styles left behind by centuries of exploration on this great continent. From dinner in the bushveld to the legendary ‘boma dinner’ under the stars, our talented chefs provide an array of dining experiences.

While the dining is relaxed, our friendly waiting staff are called Muchindas, meaning “a servant to the king”, and guests may expect to be treated accordingly! If you are looking for an intimate setting to have a romantic meal, in particular, the private ‘sala’ dinner option is ideal.

Other options include the indoor-outdoor area where you can tuck into a plated dinner or enjoy family-style dining alongside other guests. You are welcome to arrange with your Camp Manager or Chef for children’s meals that are prepared using fresh, healthy ingredients. The menu has a choice of all their favourite foods such as fish and chips, spaghetti bolognese, hamburgers, roast chicken with rice, and pizza.

BANQUETING FUNCTIONS & EVENTS

Did you know Makalali is renowned for its cuisine and has been nominated one of South Africa’s top eating establishments? Choose to dine at our entertainment centre, the legendary ‘boma’, or under a starlit African sky in the bush – our talented chefs are able to provide an array of dining experiences on any occasion and customise a menu to your specific requirements.
